So I had to finish my half square triangles quilt today.
I based my layout on the cover quilt of this book by Tricia Cribbs:
Tricia has lots of ideas for quilts using fat quarters. The 2004 edition is a classic, and it was updated in 2007 with five new designs. If you can't find it at your LQS, check here.
I used Robert Kaufman's "Treasures & Tidbits by Piece o' Cake" 10 inch squares. I only used the bright-colored squares, as I didn't think the ones with a white background would provide enough contrast. The background is "Surf Circle Dots" from the same collection, which I purchased at Cotton Blossom Farm.
The blocks finish at 8 1/2", the quilt is 52" X 90", an extra-long twin size. I really would like to add another row, but I won't have time to order more fabric before the deadline for Festival of HSTs. I like the wonky layout, the fabrics are so much fun, I thought the layout should be fun also.
Watch this spot, because I will be shopping for something fabulous at the quilt festival. And when I find it, it will be the giveaway prize when I celebrate my 100th blog post!
